Jekyll Island Lions: Projects and Volunteerism

 

Jekyll Island Lions were active working projects and volunteering with other organizations during the last week.

Christmas-at-Sea

As far as projects go, Lion Gaye continued to collect items for the International Seafarers’ Center Christmas-at-Sea effort.  To be honest, donations have been disappointing so far. To facilitate donating, a Christmas-at-Sea box will be brought to Lions Club meetings as a more convenient way for members to drop off items.  Social media reminders were sent out this past week to the local community as well.

Boxes

The club continued to collect used eyeglasses for recycling.  Last week, as usual, Lion Pete checked the collection boxes at Ameris Bank, Judy Kay’s Salon, the Jekyll Island Campground, and the Quality Inn for donated spectacles.

Lion Frank was busy this past week coordinating and scheduling the bell ringers for the Salvation Army holiday collection effort.  Volunteers have stepped forward from the community at large in addition to Lions Club members.  Bell ringing begins this week in front of the Jekyll Market and at Flash Foods.

 

Lion Howard continued as the local coordinator with the American Red Cross and a blood drive was scheduled for the end of last week.  Lions Cathy, Howard, Frank and Pete volunteered to help out during the drive, putting out signs and manning shifts.
